Imagine Festival: the living book library @ The Black Box

The living library allows you to borrow a person instead of reading a book, you sit with a person / living book for a one-to-one 20 minute conversation.

We have 13 living books /people for you to choose from, giving you the chance to have a one-to-one conversation with someone you might never have had the opportunity to speak to. Select the book / books you are interested in on the city council website, then contact them who will give you a timeslot between 1 and 4pm and provide you will more details on the event.

This is what past participants have said about the event:

“I was blown away by the living library, I borrowed two human books and the experience totally opened my eyes about people who have come here as asylum seekers and people who are from a very different community background to me… It was incredible to hear their stories and have my own perceptions questioned.”

“Being able to sit down with someone from a different background and community and listen to their story was something special. I sat with a person I would normally have no contact with and very limited understanding of their point of view. It gave me something to think about.”
